Really closing the gap (as described by Dom in [1]) is a much longer effort than 6 months; all that can likely be achieved in that timeframe is a preliminary assessment of easily-identified gaps. What we need is a more long-term effort to:
- identify what's important, to build the apps and overall app experience that users want
- identify and prioritize gaps in the set of important things
- develop and promote plans to close them
- engage with WGs over time to help ensure progress toward closing the gaps
- repeat the above periodically, as this is not a "one and done" activity

Like Web & TV, CoreMob is a focused effort (on mobile) with broader purpose than just closing gaps; it's about promoting broad support for what's needed by developers to create mobile applications that users want. That means identifying which gaps are important - there are many, and we have to prioritize.

OK, then make MindingTheGaps a 6-month focused effort of CoreMob ;).
